First, are these little falling shamrocks annoying?
I know that sometimes graphics and music can cause the blogs to load slow.. so if anyone is having a problem let me know and I will take them off.
Who is ready for spring??
We have had so many mild winter days that I am ready to put the cushions on the patio furniture and set up the deck.
I can't wait!
We are all feeling much better now.
Thank you for all of the well wishes.
Isn't this little tablescape pretty?
I found that crackled yellow pitcher at a store in the mall called Kirklands.
It was on clearance for $10.00
Everything I put in it looks good
and it seems to fit in with any room of the house.
I liked it so much that I went back and bought another one today.
Earlier this week I went to on a thrift store mission to find a "new" coffee table.
I wanted something brighter and smaller then that old chest that I was using.
I found many oval shaped tables that I didn't want
and then, at my third stop I found this amazing little dresser.
All that is needed was an inside cleaning and some tightening of the fixtures.
A few fresh coats of cream colored paint
And I had myself a great little table for just $30.00.
gosh I LOVE thrift stores!!!!!!
I love when I have a piece of furniture that I can put anything on it
and it looks good.
That's my first blog book and the cool airplane that Paul got for Christmas this year.
While I am showing random things, I did some home shopping the other night.
What is home shopping?
Home shopping is when I go up to the third floor with an empty laundry basket and fill it with goodies for the house.
Like these geraniums, I know that it is not even spring yet.. but I just couldn't help it.
I need some reminders of summer.
I even brought down the sail boat to put on the shelf that is now back in the living room.
I broke the frame while rearranging things so I sat the picture (below) on the shelf for the time being.
That's my girls back in 09.
I can't believe that it's been that long since Michelle graduated high school.
What else is hard to believe is that Sally will start high school is September.
Tomorrow morning we have an interview with the school that she hopes to attend.
Keep your fingers crossed!
This picture just warms my heart. I am so proud of these girls.
Look at this guy.
What a dirtball!!!!
He stinks, his coat feels funky and he is a tangled mess
... but lucky for him, he is still a cutie pie.
I see a few dog baths in my future.
I have been working on a few new books.
This is the silly cover to my new 2011 blog book.
It was shipped a few days ago and I just cant wait to get my hands on it.
The other book is a summer cookbook that I hasn't sent to the press yet.
It is going to be a thank you gift for Sally's middle school teachers.
I will be sure to share them both once they arrive.
Have a fantastic Thursday everyone.
See you all very soon.
